Another yummy summer salad! ย This gluten free southwestern chopped kale salad was perfect paired with a juicy bbq steak.

Topped with a creamy cilantro dressing, which was simple to make, this was the perfect summer meal.




  • medium bunch of organic kale ( I used two different kinds)
  • 15 oz. can organic black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large organic orange bell pepper
  • 1 pint organic cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups organic corn (I used fresh corn on the cobb, boiled it, then cut it off the cob)
  • 5 organic green onions
  • Creamy Cilantro Dressing or other dressing of choice

Finely chop kale, bell pepper, tomatoes, and green onions.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
Toss with desired dressing.

  1. Looks yummy. We often get kale with our weekly fruit/veggie box and I’m running out of ideas. I can’t wait to try it! Thanks Jenny!
